|On top of Cerro Ancón|
The drive up the hillside reminds me of California. The rest of Panama City reminds me of South Florida, but, georgraphically, this is like California, with flatlands and then you go up the side of hill, steep in part, to get to a viewpoint. At the top of Cerro Ancón is a giant Panamian flag. "Giant" as in "so big it should be flying a mega-gas station." There's also a selection of TV towers, both of which can be seen from all over the city.
But the whole point of driving up the one lane road to the top of Cerro Ancón is the view:

|The view of the canal side|
|The view of the Financial District. I wasn't the only turista up there at the time.|
